This clinical reference book presents state-of-the-science knowledge about the neurobiology and genetics of the major mental disorders and how this corresponds with their psychiatric features and neuropsychological traits. The text demonstrates how the application of neuropsychology to these disorders provides a more comprehensive foundation for greater accuracy in assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The book focuses on the neuropathological and pathophysiological basis of the various symptoms, emphasizing the biological basis of each disorder. This approach stresses the importance of looking at the other functional impacts of these manifestations (for example, cognitive deficits secondary to depression). The text compares adult versus child presentation of psychiatric disorders and covers the major forms of psychopathology including ADHD; Learning Disabilities; Pervasive Developmental Disorders; Mood, Anxiety, Personality, and Schizophrenic Disorders; Cortical and Subcortical Dementias; and Delirium. The book is written for clinical professionals to increase diagnostic accuracy and intervention success and to provide a way to approach psychopathologies as disorders of the neurological system. Key Features: Provides state-of-the-science knowledge about the application of neuropsychological practice to the major forms of psychopathology Examines neurological and neuropsychological features of the major forms of psychopathology Demonstrates how the application of neurobiology and genetics to psychiatric disorders can increase accuracy of assessment, diagnosis, and treatment Considers adult versus child presentation of psychiatric disorders

Neurobiology of Exceptionality

Nurture or nature? Biology or environment? Why are some people intelligent, or personable, or creative and others obtuse, or shy, or unimaginative? Although each human being is a unique mixture of positive and negative traits and behaviors, the question remains: What is the neurobiological basis for each individual’s makeup? For example, why does one person suffer from a disorder (e.g., ADHD, autism, mental retardation) and another lives free of maladies? These are just some of the issues addressed in detail in Neurobiology of Exceptionality. The introductory chapter provides a broad-based overview of current neurobiological techniques (i.e., terms, procedures, and technologies), which are followed by chapters that offer in-depth examination of the neurobiological bases for: • Impulsive sensation seeking • Creativity • Intelligence • Antisociality • Autism, mental retardation, and Down Syndrome • ADHD • Savant Syndrome This volume provides a one-stop source for clinical psychologists and other allied mental health professionals to access information on a wide range of research on the neurobiology of psychological and psychiatric traits. It is designed to give readers an overview of the current knowledge base of the biological processes for each trait. It is unlikely that any one book could cover all human traits, but the Neurobiology of Exceptionality addresses a wide range of exceptional psychological traits and psychiatric disorders.

Neural Metabolism In Vivo

From the preface: “Neural Metabolism In Vivo aims to provide a comprehensive overview of neurobiology by presenting the basic principles of up-to-date and cutting-edge technology, as well as their application in assessing the functional, morphological and metabolic aspects of the brain. Investigation of neural activity of the living brain via neurovascular coupling using multimodal imaging techniques extended our understanding of fundamental neurophysiological mechanisms, regulation of cerebral blood flow in connection to neural activity and the interplay between neurons, astrocytes and blood vessels. Constant delivery of glucose and oxygen for energy metabolism is vital for brain function, and the physiological basis of neural activity can be assessed through measurements of cerebral blood flow and consumption of glucose and oxygen.... This book presents the complex physiological and neurochemical processes of neural metabolism and function in response to various physiological conditions and pharmacological stimulations. Neurochemical detection technologies and quantitative aspects of monitoring cerebral energy substrates and other metabolites in the living brain are described under the “Cerebral metabolism of antioxidants, osmolytes and others in vivo” section. Altogether, the advent of new in vivo tools has transformed neuroscience and neurobiology research, and demands interdisciplinary approaches as each technology could only approximate a very small fraction of the true complexity of the underlying biological processes. However, translational values of the emerging in vivo methods to the application of preclinical to clinical studies cannot be emphasized enough. Thus, it is our hope that advances in our understanding of biochemical, molecular, functional and physiological processes of the brain could eventually help people with neurological problems, which are still dominated by the unknowns.” -- In-Young Choi and Rolf Gruetter

review of the current status of brain imaging and aging and to serve as an introduction to the field for those who may be starting investigations using imaging techniques of PET, structural MRI, and functional MRI. It covers basic science approaches such as using fMRI to probe networks, as well as recent developments such as amyloid imaging and the use of imaging as a biomarker in clinical trials." "The field of brain aging is undergoing rapid expansion because of new techniques such as fMRI and amyloid imaging which have been applied to both basic and clinical problems. Imaging the Aging Brain is a compendium of relevant knowledge and up-to-date analysis. Written by leaders in neurological research and presented in color, this book is as timely as it is thorough." --Book Jacket.

'Hodges's book succeeds in giving the reader a faithful picture of the dementia puzzle.' -The Lancet Neurology'This is a book that I expect to use regularly and profitably. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in dementia and to those of us who work in memory clinics and continue to be challenged by our early-onset dementia cases.' -British Journal of Psychiatry'This book contains a wealth of useful information, much of it presented in easily accessible format. Such is the breadth of coverage that it may be recommended to anyone involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with dementia, not only those with early-onset.' -Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and RehabilitationAlthough uncommon in comparison to dementia in the elderly, early-onset dementia presents a huge problem for patients, their carers and physicians. This is the first comprehensive and international book on the subject, encompassing the clinical and neuropsychological features as well as the relevant advances in the neurosciences and patient management. After an introductory chapter on epidemiology, the book deals with assessment and evaluation, covers disorders mimicking dementia and describes the relevant advances in imaging, molecular pathology, neurochemistry and neuropathology. The focus then shifts to the main causes of dementia including Alzheimer's disease, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, vascular dementia, Huntington's disease, prion encephalopathies and inflammatory disorders. The final section of the book deals with treatment issues including drug interventions and opportunities for non- pharmacological management. John Hodges is an acknowledged expert in this field and has assembled a team of leading academics and clinicians from around the world as contributors.
